much trouble that yesterday, before yesterday and the whole town of bishara al-assad, there have been demonstrations, should and we understand, one of the cousins has been killed here this is to say nothing. so the family is in very serious trouble. compare this with a year ago and i think that would give us a glimpse into how long the and of the two is going to be. >> i wanted to reinforce the concept of the demonstrations two weeks ago. we recorded more than 540 peaceful demonstrations around the country, that these people continue to go out is a testament to their desire to expedite the fall of the regime. but you also see is one pillar support of the regime has been shaking and they've been shaking faster and faster and will collapse. you will see that in areas like media where we have a significant number of media personalities who are now speaking out. you see that in the business sector. i don't off everybody knows this, but there is a price tag on the heads. a bounty of $25 million for bashar al-assad's head. so all these pillars are shaking faster and faster. i don't think it

on assad head for a bounty of $25 million. so all of these pillars are shaking faster and faster. i don't think it's going to go to next summer. >> the point you raised about the sectarian issue. i think this was one of the cards the regime was relying on and that's why they created sectarian based massacres especially in the western side in syria which is a vulnerable area where you actually have one village, one village. that is syria's existence over hundreds of thousands of years. what happened is the syrian regime tried to break these organic co-existing structures that really mark the region. and the amazing thing is the level of self-restraint the syrian people have shown. the syrian army had access to villages from other sects and they did not engage in sectarian violence. it has been limited. considering the level of brutality and the sectarian sentiments in the country they have shown tremendous unity. anybody would be touched to see the slogans the people raced after a four-day campaign where close to 900 people were massacred. the slogans they carried were that this revoluti

position against assad and calling for him to leave and accusing him of terrible deeds. so, yes, but it's not in the interest of the syrians to provoke the turks. the turkish army is fairly strong and the syrians are already having trouble fighting the free syrian army why bring in another enemy? >> pelley: hisham melhem, you see it that way to? >> the syrians said they are investigating the accident but obviously we don't know if t exact circumstances. logically one would say assad can't provoke the turks because the turkish army is strong and they can take out the syrian army which is already exhausted. at the same time there are those who would argue that it's in the interest of syria to force the turks to play their hand and even the threat of a regional conflagration could force the international powers, the russians, the iranians, others to push the turks not to help the syrian opposition as we talk now we can talk about a regional conflict albeit on a limited basis. we know iranians are sending technicians, trainers -- >> warner: you say it's already starting. >> of course, and w

them that would give them a way to fight back against president assad's helicopters and his air force. we also got disturbing word from the rebels. they posted the video. we have a still frame from the video to show you of a number of iranian hostages being held by the rebels. they say they will start executing those iranian hostages if the syrians and iranians do not start releasing syrian rebel prisoners. this will be a real test in terms of how much iran is willing to stand behind president assad, if they're ill willing to see their own people executed to try to keep up pressure on rebels. the next 48 hours will see how that will play out. as we know there is a lot of pressure right now on president sass saud even though there is what you might call a tense calm on the border after the skirmish you talked about in the beginning jenna. right now the turk kish it foreign minister said it would a serious mistake to underestimate turkey's resolve. as we've seen the past don't four, 48 hours, it could easily snowball into a regional war if there is anymore firing into turkey from syria
